Beach Camp Manhattan Beach

Join us at Beach Camp for a week-long journey of sun, surf and smiles! Starting at age 4, our camp is designed to be the perfect introduction to the beach for our younger campers. Developed in collaboration with local elementary school teachers and lifeguards, BeachSports Beach Camp is designed to ensure an inclusive, safe, educational and FUN experience for our campers!

Throughout the week, campers will be immersed in a range of exciting beach and water activities along with carefully crafted games and ocean safety lessons tailored specifically for their age group. From understanding rip tides, currents and wave formation to mastering whitewater boogie boarding and exploring beach ecology, our campers will be engaged in both learning and play.

At Beach Camp, we’ve created an environment where every day is an opportunity for campers to learn, grow and create lasting memories on the beach.

FAQ: Online Registration

Groups: What are Groups?

During registration you will be asked to choose a Group.  We break our camps into groups (ex. A, B, C, D) with a limited number of spots available in each group. These small groups ensure an ultra safe and personalized learning environment with very low instructor to participant ratios. If you are enrolling with friends or family and want to participate in activities together, make sure to sign up for the same Group during registration.

Session Options: Extended Day & Early Drop-Off

Session Options / Extended Day + Early Drop-Off
Extended Day (9AM-4PM) and Early Drop-Off (8:15AM) can be added to your registration during checkout. Please keep in mind Extended Day, open to ages 7+, is a long day at the beach and may be too much for some campers.  Extended Day programming will consist of a variety of age appropriate beach games and water activities with opportunities for kids to relax in the shade at their discretion.

Waitlists

If the program you're enrolling in is sold out, you will see the option to join the waitlist.  There is no charge to join the waitlist so we encourage you to join even if you've found an alternative program for that week.  Our waitlist is automated so as soon as a cancellation is processed you will receive an email asking if you'd like to join. If you'd like to join, you simply click "yes" and follow the steps for registration. Click "no" and the next person on the waitlist will be notified of the opening.  Feel free to Contact Us anytime to check your place on the waitlist or see if there is space in another Group or program.

Rashguard / Sunshirts

BeachSports provides one rashguard/sunshirt per summer which will be provided on your first day and is to be worn to camp daily. Additional rashguards are available for purchase during registration or at our Online Store.

Discounts

We currently offer discounts to families registering siblings and for campers attending multiple weeks of camps.  Discounts are applied automatically at checkout and are calculated as follows:

  • Multi-Week Discount: When a camper enrolls in 2 or more weeks of camp, a 7% discount will be applied to the second and subsequent weeks of camp.
  • Sibling Discount: When siblings enroll in the same or different camps, a 10% discount will be applied to the second and subsequent siblings total.  

A few notes about discounts:

  • Discounts only apply for registrations that are purchased in the same order (i.e. as part of the same cart). For example, if you complete the purchase of one week of camp then return at a  later date and purchase another week, whether for the same camper or a sibling, the automated multi-week or sibling discount will not be applied. Please email us (team@beachsports.com) and we will complete your registration on our end.
  • Discounts do not apply to Session Options or Merchandise purchases.

Please feel free to contact us (team@beachsports.com) with any questions regarding sibling and multi-week discounts.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  No discounts are available for our Hermosa Beach programs.  The City of Hermosa Beach manages registration and payments for our Hermosa programs and, unfortunately, prohibits us from offering discounts for siblings or multi-week registrations.

Registration Fee
We use a third party software called Active to facilitate our registrations. A $3 fee will be added to each camp session purchased, which is paid directly to Active. BeachSports absorbs the 20% Los Angeles County Beach Use Fee and credit card processing fees.
Confirmation Emails

Upon completion of your online registration you will receive an email with information specific to your program as well as a purchase receipt for your records. You will also receive a detailed reminder email the week prior to your camp start date. Additional information can be found in our online guide here: Camp Information for Registered Campers

Merchandise Purchases

During registration you will have the option to purchase various products.  Depending on the product, it may be shipped to your home or delivered to you on the first day of camp.  Delivery options will be specified in the product description.
